This exclusive journey is designed with families and small groups in mind. It accommodates six to eight guests on a truly once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will take you from the heights of colonial Quito to the Amazon Rainforests to all of the exotic wonders of the Galapagos Islands!
We invite you on the ultimate Ecuadorian adventure to experience the jungles of the Amazon, the local markets of Quito, Riobamba’s indigenous communities, Cuenca’s undeniable traditional colonial charm, and the exotic wonders of the Galapagos from a private villa – and yacht!
Your journey begins with two nights in Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Center, before spending three full days and nights exploring the Ecuadorian Amazon. Highlights of your stay in the Amazon include supporting local conservation efforts and engaging with members of the Kichwa community.
Outside of Riobamba, interact with the indigenous Ozogoche community as they go about daily life. The Ozogoche communities, who still speak the native Quichua language, are farmers raising llamas and sheep as well as growing corn, beans, and potatoes.
Continue to Cuenca, renowned for being one of Ecuador’s most picturesque towns thanks to its colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, colorful plazas, and being the originator of Panama Hats! Immerse in the local culture and markets of Cuenca and the nearby communities.
Experience Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest and most unique city, before traveling to the Galapagos! Traverse the Galapagos in true luxury from a private villa on Santa Cruz Island – complete with a state-of-the-art Sunseeker Manhattan 74-foot motoryacht and chef!
The five-night Galapagos stay includes two full days of island hopping aboard the yacht and the best naturalist guides to accompany you during your adventure, whether scuba diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, hiking, trekking, mountain biking, or fishing.
